The Importance of Fun and Curiosity to Productivity

A comment made at a networking event I attended last week reminded me of an idea I originally heard from a podcast where Elizabeth Gilbert was the guest.

Instead of pressuring yourself to find your ONE big passion in life, she shared that following your curiosity is important. Notice what you’re curious about and explore it.

The comment lead me to think about how following my curiosity, or not, has affected my life and my business.

You see, in previous years I’ve pushed aside things I’ve been interested in or curious about that didn’t directly tie into my goals or bottom line.

I made a conscious decision to not pursue them until “later.”

Earlier this year I started saying yes to some of these “later” things for no particular reason than I wanted to.

And I’m realizing as I type this, that some of the things on that list have been there, unmoving, for two or more years.

The interesting thing is, that through exploring and experiencing some of those “later” items, I’m having more fun in my personal life and my business.

So, for this week’s Wednesday LIVE with Evie let’s talk about the importance of fun and curiosity in your business and I share a bit more about how it’s affected my life and business.
